Squash is a racquet sports game, seemingly similar to tennis, but played on a small indoor court with hollow rubber ball, much small than a tennis ball. Squash is an intense, high impact sport. This squash tutorial demonstrates a squash solo drill: backhand drive.
Driving down the wall:
The difficulty in developing an accurate drive is to be able to get the feet and body in position and at the same time keep the swing controlled.
Things to think about to be able to achieve this:
* Watch the ball closely
* Judge the speed of the ball to assist early preparation.
* Keep away from the ball and wall to allow adjustment of body positioning.
* Strive to keep the racket head controlled no matter which foot leads into the swing
* Squash is played between two individuals (singles) or two teams of two (doubles) on a Squash Court.
* One player serves to start a rally which proceeds until one player hits the ball out or down or fails to hit the ball before it has bounced twice.
* Squash can be played using a couple of scoring options, traditional (International) scoring and point a rally scoring (PARS).
* Squash Players having a social game can modify the rules to their own requirements.
Squash Safety and Fitness:
* If your fitness is poor or you haven't played Squash for some time, don't overdo it.
* Remember, Squash is a fast game. If you have a rally which requires a lot of short sharp movement, it may take your body a moment or two before it realises that a lot of oxygen is needed for recovery.
* This can result in a sudden increase in heart rate.
* This is not a good thing for those who lack fitness.
